If there’s a time to crane your neck in the sky to see what lurks closer to the clouds, I suppose it is now.
As you can see from the towering, soon-to-be-finished Burj Dubai in the United Arab Emirates, I’m not talking about a Buddhist temple perched on the curve of a giant mountain in Tibet, China, India or Bhutan.
But that sight that would be nice, too.
The Burj Dubai reportedly costs $4.1 billion and shoots up 818 meters – or 2,684 feet – already making it the world’s tallest structure.
With over 160 stories, it will likely open on Dec. 2 - or at least part of it will - as part of the Emirates’ National Day, according to BurjDubaiSkyscraper.
